Winter reads: Hiber-Nation '13
Caught yourself a nasty case of the flu? Holed up at home and already blown through 'Twink Peaks' on Netflix? Try spending a lazy, housebound winter day with a stack of green home and garden-themed books.

Welcome to week two of "Hiber-Nation," a weekly series of product-centric posts featuring home accessories and other odds-and-ends that will help make housebound-in-the-winter life a bit more enjoyable.
Now that I've zeroed-in on one of the most — if not the
most — compulsory items
for seasonal hunker down-dom, I'm tackling seven newly released or soon-to-be-released must-reads that serve as excellent snowed-in and/or flued-in
distractions. My picks cover a wide range of green home and garden topics ranging from energy-saving home improvement projects to chicken coop architecture to a memoir that's rich with "horticultural how-to and woo-woo." And if you're on for prowl for additional don't-want-to-leave-the-house reads, be sure to check out this batch of fall releases
that you may have missed.
Is there a new book that you're excited to spend some QT with this winter?
